A unique feature of the Penn State Hershey IBD Center is that we provide a dedicated IBD Coordinator to serve as a central point of contact for each IBD patient throughout their IBD care experience. When you call our dedicated IBD phone line, our coordinator will efficiently guide you through the care process by getting your medical history and then ensuring that you are seen by the appropriate physician amongst the multiple specialties within our IBD Center.
The primary role of our coordinator is that of an advocate and personal care coach for each IBD patient, acting as a liaison with the IBD health care team on behalf of the patient. In addition, our IBD Coordinator provides education to patients regarding their disease process, treatment options, and resources available here at the Penn State Hershey IBD Center.
Call 717-531-3998 today to schedule an appointment or to discuss treatment options.
Our IBD Coordinator phone line is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you need to contact our IBD Center before or after these hours or have a medical emergency, please call 911 or Penn State Hershey Medical Center operator at 717-531-8521.
